Old National Bank presents “Boo at the Zoo” at Mesker Park Zoo & Botanic Garden


Boo at the Zoo kicks off this Friday, October 17, 2014 and runs Friday through Sunday over two consecutive weekends. This annual “not-so-scary” Halloween themed event is popular with families as attendees are encouraged to dress in costume as they explore the Treat Trail on zoo grounds. The event also offers live entertainment including Magic Shows, Storytelling, Photo Ops, Moonlite Tram, Animal Encounters, Tent of Terror and new this year- Crocosaurus.
The zoo will have last admittance at 2 p.m. for regular zoo visitors during the two weekends of the event. Gates re-open at 5 p.m. for Boo at the Zoo ticketholders. Advanced ticket purchase is recommended to avoid entry lines. Tickets are $6.00 for zoo members age one and up and $8.00 for non-members age one and up.
